Trump vows to 'fight back' against Mueller probe

Trump to fight back againsst Mueller

President Donald Trump on Wednesday pledged that he will continue to “fight back” against special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe and insisted that reports of chaos inside the White House are “fake news.”

Trump has ratcheted up his public attacks on Mueller’s probe and related investigations since a Monday FBI raid on his longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, stoking fears that the president could move to oust Mueller or Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who oversees the Mueller probe.

“I (we) are doing things that nobody thought possible, despite the never ending and corrupt Russia Investigation, which takes tremendous time and focus. No Collusion or Obstruction (other than I fight back), so now they do the Unthinkable, and RAID a lawyers office for information! BAD!”

TVNL Comment:  What does the Clown in Chief have to hide?  If he were innocent of any wrongdoing, would this war against the Special Counsel be waged so desperately? Trump is scared. Very scared.  Why?



FBI Has Questions About Michael Cohen’s Shady Taxicab Business

Michael Cohen's cab company probed by FBI

The FBI raid on lawyer Michael Cohen was reportedly prompted by a business entanglement that could sink his career ― but investigators are also seeking information about Cohen’s involvement in the New York City taxi business where he got his start, sources told CNN.

Since President Donald Trump’s personal attorney first entered the taxi business in the mid-1990s, his modest fleet has linked him to some of the most notorious owners in the industry. According to one recent estimate that Cohen himself disputes, he owns 34 medallions. Most are operated by Evgeny Freidman ― the “taxi king” of New York City until last spring, when the city stripped Friedman of his ability to hold a license. Freidman was arrested in June for an unpaid state tax bill totaling $5 million.


Trump reportedly demanded in December that Mueller be fired

Trump wanted to fire last DecemberRobert Mueller be fired and the former FBI director's investigation shut down, The New York Times reported on Tuesday.

At that time, the president was angry over reports that Mueller's latest subpoenas were related to Trump's business interactions with Deutsche Bank, the newspaper said, citing interviews with White House officials.

The Deutsche Bank reports were inaccurate, the special counsel's office told Trump's team, and the president did not act on his desires — but it was the second time that Trump is known to have considered firing Mueller, according to the Times.


EPA removes staffer who OK’d report on Pruitt’s security

EPA reoves staffer EPA removed a career staffer Tuesday who approved an internal report that undermined Administrator Scott Pruitt's claims that he needed around-the-clock bodyguards and other expensive security protection, according to two former agency employees familiar with the situation.

Mario Caraballo was the deputy associate administrator of EPA's Office of Homeland Security, which in February concluded that an earlier assessment failed to identify credible direct threats against the administrator that would justify his heavy security spending.


FBI Raid on Michael Cohen Is the Most Dangerous Day of Donald Trump’s Life

Michael Cohen : the worst day of his life

Monday’s FBI raids on Michael Cohen’s Trump Tower office, his hotel room, and his home all provided a proper dose of comeuppance to a man more accustomed to screaming threats, shit-tier legal theorizing, and putting his strip-mall law degree to work in service of Donald Trump.

Cohen, far from being the superlawyer to a billionaire real-estate tycoon, really only has one important job: covering up Trump’s alleged dalliances. It was Cohen batting cleanup, dealing with an army of models, escorts, Mistresses (large “M” and small “m”), actresses, porn stars, models, Real Dolls, fangirls, groupies, and random topiary at Mar-a-Delicto with a wall of nondisclosure agreements. Master of the NDA, Cohen thought attorney-client privilege would protect him.


The John Bolton effect: Donald Trump's homeland security adviser departs

Homeland security adviser resignsNew National Security Adviser John Bolton continued to remold President Trump's national security team Tuesday, as Trump accepted the resignation of homeland security adviser Tom Bossert.

"The president is grateful for Tom’s commitment to the safety and security of our great country," White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in announcing Bossert's resignation.

Bossert's move came two days after Michael Anton announced his departure as spokesman for the National Security Council.


Mueller Reportedly Investigating Ukraine Payment To Trump Foundation

The New York Times, citing three unnamed people with knowledge of the matter, reported on Monday that the inquiry pertained to a payment Ukrainian billionaire Victor Pinchuk made to the Donald J. Trump Foundation for a 20-minute video appearance by Trump to a conference in Kiev.

The White House didn’t immediately return HuffPost’s request for comment.
